BARCELONA, March 20: A change in his diet has helped Argentine FC Barcelona star Lionel Messi not throw up on the pitch during games, the celebrated forward revealed.

�I ate badly for many years: chocolates, fizzy drinks, and everything,� Messi told La Cornisa TV.

�That is what made me throw up during games. Now I look after myself better. I eat fish, meat, salads. Everything is organised and taken care of,� Messi added.

There were concerns over Messi�s state of health and many thought the five-time Ballon d�Or might have an illness, or was suffering from stress.

�I�ve learned to live the way I do, to be myself because at the end of the day it�s easier to do it that way,� the 30-year-old conceded.

�I don�t think too much about how I have to act because of constantly being watched. I�m aware that whenever I speak there are many people that listen, that there are repercussions. I always try to think about what I say in order not to generate controversies.�

Messi also talked about his sons. He welcomed Ciro, his third, earlier this month, but the occasion did not make him emotional.

�The last time I cried for joy was when my son Mateo was born (2015),� Messi said.

�By the time the third one came, I was already used to it!�

Messi added that the birth in 2012 of his first son, Thiago, influenced his life and he could take on-field defeats in a better way.

�The arrival of my first son (Thiago) made me open my mind, not to focus solely on my profession, on football,� he said.

�Of course I don�t like to draw or lose but I take it differently. There are many important things other than a result.

�In the end it�s a game and everyone wants to win, be a champion and be the best. But at times it�s not possible. You can�t always win and not always the best one wins. I learned that when it�s over, there are other things... Being with my children, my wife, my family, the rest is secondary.� � IANS
